I'm planning on getting a new Apache RTR 160, and I see there are two versions available - one with the Rear Disc Brakes and one without. The RD version costs 1.5K more. Is it worth getting it? I drive at 40-70kmph in average road conditions.
I've asked lots of my friends for advice. Few say it's good and most say it's not. They say drum brake is the better choice for the rear, and that disc is going to result in lots of skids. I didn't get a chance to test out the RD version properly during the test ride because they allow you to circle around the showroom and you can't go at high speeds (~60kmph) to test out the rear discs.
So what do you experienced guys say? What should I go for? With or without disc brakes?
